24 June 2019 – 27 June 2019 Messe München, Munich, Germany

Computational Optical Sensing and Imaging


Theoretical to experimental demonstration and applications of the latest advances in computational imaging research.

Computational sensing and imaging applications span from fundamental science to medical, security, and defense industry applications. COSI encompasses the latest advances in computational imaging research, emphasizing integration of opto-electric measurement and computational processing. 

The 2018 COSI meeting will emphasize advances in machine learning applied to imaging and sensing with applications ranging from autonomous vehicles to biomedical imaging. We have an exciting group of invited speakers that will lead the agenda for the 2018 COSI. We will also host a special 50th anniversary celebration of the publication of the Introduction to Fourier Optics by Joseph Goodman, one of the seminal textbooks in our field.
